Hi! Picked up my new cam on Friday , a Pentax Optio 450 4MP compact and rushed home in excitement, hoping to take some excellent pics! However it started raining but then someone up there must have been listening…. Later the skies cleared up and Mars rises … So I have to get my scope out and take some pics of it… The following day I goto a local lake to get some shots of birds.. Wow! Black Swans The geese are very willing.. Except for this one…! I’m really pleased with this camera, hopefully I’ll be taking more and better shots with it!
